Game Stew Studio has given us some great games, including Tower of Fortune, Devil Shard, and The Lost Shield, and now it's getting ready to release its next game, Last Colossus, which looks really, really cool. As you can see in our forum thread, Last Colossus is an ACT/RPG game where you play as a commander who gains control of a giant robot after crash-landing on a war-torn planet. I mean, you had me at controlling a giant robot to be honest. This simulation game spans 9 chapters and includes a variety of enemies and bosses ready to make your life harder. And it even comes with 3 different endings, depending on the choices you make along the way.

If you know any of the previous work of this studio, then you won't be surprised by how much the game nails a retro feel while not feeling dated. It really isn't an easy thing to do, and many developers fall for slavishly mimicking older games without keeping in mind that they are making a modern game. Last Colossus looks great, and it's releasing next Thursday, September 28th. Check out more about the game in our forum thread.
